Hmm, I'm significantly less left wing this time than usual, marginally less libertarian. This test is heavily left-biased so my answers are probably quite centrist.

way down there in the purple somewhere - I can't be bothered to take the test all over again just to embed the picture
but honestly the political compass test is hilariously flawed in that it assumes you want to *enforce* your personal beliefs
for instance, if I thought that private global corporations were "exploiting third world nations", that would mean that I become more of a socialist. actually, I don't find anything wrong with this kind of "exploitation", because it benefits them both.

Agreed, one of the questions was something along the lines of "having a dictator means that policies will get put through faster."

the answer is obviously yes but that does not mean I want or even like a dictator

exactly
the wording of the questions assumes that most people taking it have no nuance to their perspectives - i.e. a dualism between their morals and whether they want to enforce them, like I suggested
it should only ask what somebody's policy perspectives are because that is ultimately the only thing that matters. I could be a socialist but still understand, for instance, that socialism isn't functional when applied to a government over a long period of time, and hence, be a capitalist. but if this quiz asked me "is socialism moral?" I might say "yes" in a certain context, i.e. public schools, but it will twist that kind of statement into anything it wants at the end of the day

At school it infuriates me that peoples political views are "Where are you on the compass" not "What policies do you stand for"

back when I had no idea about politics in my first politics a level lesson the teacher (who was a lovely chap to be honest although he was very different politically to me) asked everybody to get their political compass scores so that he could plot every student on the grid on his whiteboard. I was very different back then but the difference was exaggerated because of the fact that, as we've seen, the political compass test has no concept of a distinction between morality and preferences regarding policies. but what I distinctly remember was that even those students who I considered conservatives at the time were still mostly in the green part of the spectrum

Economically, I'm more right-wing than Hitler.
